We stayed in this hotel for our honeymoon in late August 2013. Sadly we only had a few nights here. The location is breathtaking. The hotel is pristine. The room we had was really nice and very warm. The staff were superfriendly and even though we hadn't told them we were there for our honeymoon, they must have overheard us and made us an extra special breakfast and meal with a beautifully made up table with the best view. The food was fantastic. No mobile signal which is actually very liberating. They have wifi which just about extended to our room but we were probably as far away as you could get from it.
Plus points: Where do I start? They have got it dead on the nail. Everything genuinely was brilliant and I cannot wait to go back there.
Minus points: This is a tough one... I actually don't have anything negative to say other than once I waited for about 10 minutes at the bar for a drink but to be fair the staff were taking guests through for their evening meal at the time so probably bad timing on my part.
